Suspected drug plane circling over Belize?

Chester Williams

And while Belize is still reeling from the deadly crash involved in the last interception of the drug plane off the Coastal Road, there was another aircraft circling over the Belize District on Tuesday night. According to Commissioner of Police, the authorities were lying in wait but the plane didn’t land in Belize. Here’s what he had to say:

 

Reporter

“Plane circling last night, Belize District, did that reach your desk?”

 

Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police

“Yes, it circled and we were out waiting. I didn’t land. It went over to Guatemala side.”

 

Reporter

“Sir, it was a narco plane that was seen around eight-nine p.m, in the Belize District, Hattieville, Gardenia, those areas?”

 

Chester Williams

“Well, we can’t say if it was a narco plane. It didn’t land in Belize. It went over into Guatemala side and we have no information from Guatemala that it landed or if they intercepted it. So, we cannot say if it was a narco plane.”

 

Reporter

“You think it had a scenario to land here but chose otherwise?”

 

Chester Williams

“It could have been that they wanted to land here but due to our efforts, they were forced to go elsewhere.”
